5.0 out of 5 stars Maximum Epic January 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a teenage girl who loves the classics. These books made me giggle. They kept me turning pages. They were really easy reads. Sure, there were a couple plot holes that beffuddled me, but only a couple. What you've got to remember is: this is a book for teenagers, kids, reluctant readers, and people who just need a break from the land of serious that many classics create. Max is snarky, sarcastic, and fun, and her flockmates are great characters. Reading any bad reviews makes me slightly bemused. If you read a bad review, disregard it! These are phenomenal books.

By E.L.S.

The first three novels of this high-octane, action-adventure series had me turning pages. Max is a tough as nails protagonist with a plight that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ride! January 29, 2011
By lisa
Format:Paperback
I picked this set up not knowing what it was about, and I'm glad I did. I have read all six books in the series, and I can't wait for the seventh one Angel to come out. I love the character Max. This series remindes me almost of a super hero comic book type. There is always action and adventure. It is about six kids trying to survive everyone trying to hunt them down, and trying to remain a normal family at the same time. Each kid has something diffrent about them. Enough said don't want to spoil it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!!! December 26, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I love these books and can't get enough of them. I have read all the books so far and eagerly awaiting for the 7th (i already have it on pre-order). My friends and I have always found a way to get the Maximum Ride series in our conversations. I'm in my early teens and highly recommend these books. There might be some gaps here and there but that is part of what makes the reader continue reading and begging for more. I love every page of this series and hope it stays that way. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read until you get to the anti-capitalism and large corp. part.
Well written and engaging for the first two books. However, the third book got way to "preachy" about the dangers of capitalism and large corporations.

More About the Author

It is no surprise that in January, 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having "transformed book publishing," and that Time magazine hailed him as "The Man Who Can't Miss." Recently, NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams profiled Patterson's prolific career, AARP named him one of the "50 Most Influential People Who Make Our Days a Little Brighter," and Variety featured him in a cover story highlighting his adventures in Hollywood.

In 2013, it was estimated that one-in-five of all hardcover suspense/thriller novels sold was written by James Patterson, his books have sold over 300 million copies worldwide, and he holds the Guinness record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. And his success isn't based solely on thrillers like the perennially popular Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Michael Bennett series. Patterson is now also the current bestselling author in the young adult and middle grade categories.

He's been called the busiest man in publishing, and that's not just because of his own books. For the past decade, James has been devoting more and more of his time to championing books and reading. From the James Patterson Pageturner Awards, to his website ReadKiddoRead.com, to his College Book Bucks scholarships and his regular donations of hundreds of thousands of books to schools here in the states and troops overseas (see interviews on Fox & Friends, The Dennis Miller Radio Show and CNN.com), Patterson has passed on his passion of books and reading and supported those who do the same. Jim personally funded a major ad campaign re-printing a recent opinion piece on CNN.com about how it is our responsibility to get our kids reading. The ad has run in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and USA Today. Those ads are a call to action to parents to make their kids reading a top priority; and were featured by USA Today here. Patterson believes that we cannot rely on schools, teachers or the government to get our kids reading; only parents can make this crucial change in the reading habits of our kids. Here are links to some interviews on his first-ever dual lay down (two books, one for parents and one for kids, in one day): AOL's You've Got, NBC's "Today Show" with Hoda and Kathie Lee, USA Today and Family Circle, NBC's "Today Show" with Al Roker, as well as an interview with AARP.
